Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science, National Technical University «Igor Sikorsky Кyiv Polytechnic Institute» and Frantsevich Materials Research Society regularly (every two years) organize a conference on the materials science of refractory compounds and materials. The forum bears the name of an outstanding scientist Grigoryi V. Samsonov, one of the founders of materials science of advanced refractory carbides, nitrides, borides, silicides, etc. Over 400 refractory compounds were synthesized and extensively characterized under his supervision and described in 36 books. Out of this knowledge, industrial technologies of these compounds were developed and commercialized.
Refractory materials operate under extreme conditions such as high temperatures, and pressures, aggressive chemical and radiation media and are widely used in many industrial fields. Recently the 1D and 2D unusual forms of refractory compounds have been discovered and attracted significant scientific interest. The conference will focus on discussing the advances in fundamental understanding and application of refractory materials.
We invite you to submit your experimental or theoretical works covering the following topic areas in the field of refractory compounds:
